The recent Carphone Warehouse breach once again highlights the importance of cyber security. However, whilst the technical details are still filtering out, there should also be a significant focus on reviewing the security and data-loss procedures to further minimise future attacks.
To limit the impact of a breach, cyber security is needed to step beyond being a purely technological solution and permeate the business, to include governance, process and staff training, in addition to the technology controls that your cyber security department can deliver. How you respond to and subsequently manage a security incident is just as critical to minimise the impact and learn lessons for the future.
Luckily there are plenty of options available to most companies to lower their risk profile without rebuilding your IT infrastructure from scratch. If you would like to find out more feel free to contact us on 0208 0888 222
